LAS VEGAS – Four-time Strikeforce veteran Derek Brunson, UFC veterans Nissen Osterneck and Jay Silva, and six-time WEC veteran Marcus Hicks were among more than 120 middleweight and light-heavyweight hopefuls who attended Monday's open tryout session for "The Ultimate Fighter 17."

The prospective cast members gathered at the Fertitta family-owned Palace Station Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

The tryouts started out with a bang – literally – as light-heavyweight hopefuls Diman Morris and Dan Charles went crashing through a folding table during their two-minute grappling session.

The pair was just the second set of fighters to step before UFC matchmakers Joe Silva and Sean Shelby for evaluation. Fortunately, neither fighter was injured, and cooler heads prevailed throughout the remainder of the day.

Too bad for Osterneck, I always thought he could be a decnt gatekeeper.

Anyway, to Hicks
